Updating of the labelling of SENTINEL products according
to the CLP regulation (EC) N. 1272/2008


CLP Introduction:
The CLP is the European regulation governing the classification, labeling and packaging of hazardous substances and mixtures.

(CE) N. 1272/2008


The CLP Regulation ensures that the hazards presented by chemicals are clearly communicated to workers and consumers in the European Union through classification and labelling.

Starting from June 1st 2015 CLP is the reference regulation for the classification, labeling and packaging of mixtures.

SENTINEL has carried out an updated assessment of the level of danger of its products, based on the classifications imposed by new regulations and has reviewed the following labeling documents of: Instructions for Use (IFU), Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and Labels.

On the above mentioned documents, the new classification with their pictograms has been introduced. The kits requiring such changes and which will be manufactured after June 1st 2015, will contain the new IFU and will also be identified with a yellow warning label on the outer packaging of the kit.

Inside the kits there will be an additional sheet that will highlight the adaptation to the CLP regulation to alert the user to this change.


Below you can find the list of updated products.

For details about the types of hazard and precautionary statements, refer to the new IFU or their respective SDS, which can be downloaded from the website by logging on to the members area:
